Dreading the horrendous after-effect of Holi? Vogue has you clean and covered. 

Before

Protect the scalp: The scalp is the most sensitised as a result of colour depositions on the hair. According to Placid Braganza, expert stylist at Wella Professionals, using a scalp protection product can avoid any chemical penetration. He recommends SP Balance Scalp Lotion.
Coat it: Use a whole lot of oil (coconut, almond, olive) to coat the hair.
Condition well: "It shuts down the cuticle layer of the hair, not allowing the colour to seep in," explains Braganza.
Cover up: Braid oiled hair or cover it with a bandana to avoid direct colour contact.
Avoid chemical treatments: "Save the salon visits for after Holi. This includes hair colouring, chemical treatments and even the use of styling tools," says Braganza.

After

Condition first: For Braganza, immediately after Holi, starting your hair wash with a conditioner first will neutralise all the colour and chemicals in the hair. Follow this by shampoo.
Pantene's hair expert Coleen Khan suggests going for a hair spa treatment once a week, for six weeks, to get your hair back to its natural and shiny self.
Home remedies: Khan also recommends using egg, yogurt or flat beer as conditioner alternatives.
Braganza's recipe to tackle the roughness: a mixture of eggs, curd and olive oil.
If the scalp feels itchy or sensitive, Braganza's remedy is a little bit of aloe vera gel to cool it down.
